Did you know that 2008 is The Year of the Frog? Zoos, botanical gardens and aquariums around the globe are joining in a massive public awareness campaign to highlight the amphibian extinction crisis.

This 1974 North Korean postage stamp illustrates the Rana catesbeiana ... better known as the Bullfrog! It was part of a set of four stamps all featuring frogs. The stamps were issued without gum.

Just see this all stamp with frogs around, nice research and must be also valuable collection – and by way, see that You don’t have any from Serbia and Montenegro, Yugoslavia and other from Balkan countries!
